What does summer feels like to you, if you describe it in art? This is how it feels to me right now, in collage form. Seven new collages – again.

I get a lot of Summer Feels from these collages, and hope you do too. But naming these more abstract patches is getting harder and harder… I raking my brain over here, but so far I’ve managed to give each of the +140 collages I’ve made this year a title.

Here are the 7 collages I have made most recently, for my 365 Collages project. Enjoy.

Oh and please please let me know in the comments how your midsummer was if you celebrate, and which of these collages you like best?

You can imagine the sunset coloring him a much brighter pink, can’t you?
